Farming stories and skills from our small farm, gardening and homesteading journey -

pasture to plate.

This week we are just doing a bunch of updates (since there's a lot to share).  We talk about how the piglets are doing well even after the traumatic events covered in episode 0110

Then we tell a story of how great and helpful the United States Postal Service </sarcasm> was when they seemed to have lost our box of broiler chickens. But have no fear, we found them and we share how they are doing in the brooder.

In the Veggie Patch we talk about the progress and planting of the vegetable garden now that the official growing season has begun. We got in the tomatoes, peppers, eggplant and a bunch more over the long weekend.  We also talk about a listener inspired mulching session around the asparagus and rhubarb in the garden.
